	It is all this informality and hand-waving around atom:id and

(atom:updated) for entries, archiving would be trivial even for "ignoramus
apps".


BTW, if it weren't for the atrocious design error of banning recursive feeds, we wouldn't even be having this argument. A feed would always mean "current status", while a series of them would mean "stream".
